Extraordinary: Jesus wasn’t the kind of king people expected in that He loved us while we were still sinners. He is one with God the Father, yet He humbled Himself to fulfill God’s promises. He took all of our shame so that we may live truly free. He is the beginning and the end, the author and finisher of our faith. Out of His extraordinary love, He gave His life for us. Through His extraordinary power, He offers us the greatest gift of all time.
In ourselves, none of us are good enough to be in right standing with God. But Jesus became sin for us so that we could be set free. Because of Him we have the opportunity to rest in God’s presence without a sense of condemnation, inferiority or rejection. We can live in victory knowing that we have already been forgiven! Everything we could ever do has already been paid for through grace, and we simply have to position ourselves to receive it.
